Morocco’s Atlas Lions Continue to Lose Places in FIFA Ranking


Rabat – Morocco’s Atlas  Lions dropped two more places in the most recent FIFA ranking, now sitting at 45th out of all international football teams in April.

The football team also lost places in the African regional ranking, sitting in fourth behind Senegal (first), Tunisia (second), and Nigeria (third).

FIFA’s February ranking put Morocco 43rd globally and third in Africa.

Morocco’s position was impacted by the Atlas Lions’ latest two games in March. The Atlas Lions recently played their last Africa Cup of Nations qualifier match against Malawi, which ended 0-0, on March 22.

The Atlas Lions also lost their friendly game against Argentina 0-1 on March 26.

The Atlas Lions are now preparing for the continental championship, known as AFCON or Africa Cup of Nations (CAN), which will begin in Egypt in June.
